Re: Press Release – JHS provide ‘The Odyssey Scholarship

Learning to play a musical instrument can be a daunting task at the best of times, and choosing the correct instrument is a minefield for the novice or improver.

Worldwide Odyssey Brasswind trade distributors John Hornby Skewes & Co Ltd. have teamed up with Morecambe’s Promenade Music to present three young musicians with ‘The Odyssey Scholarships’, providing free lessons via Wigan Music Services and the free use of Odyssey Brasswind musical instruments for full year.

Designed by master craftsman Peter Pollard Odyssey Brasswind is quickly becoming the ‘goto’ brand for teachers and stores when recommending new instruments, due to their impressive specification, high build quality and ease of playing, whilst at the same time not breaking the bank of mum and dad!

Dave Little, Head of Music Service added – “As the provider of instrumental tuition at St Stephens, Wigan Music Service is delighted to accept this most generous gift which we will ensure is put to excellent use with the talented pupils in school. It is wonderful to have such craftsmanship on our doorstep here in the borough and we look forward to developing this relationship further.”

This years presentation took place at St Stephens Primary School in Astley, Manchester and the Scholarship winners are pictured below with their loaner instruments – Daniel Short (OBH1400 Baritone Horn), Olivia Lysons (OTH1900 Tenor Horn) and Jacob Pendlebury (OCR100 Cornet) alongside John Ford (left) from Wigan Music Services and Odyssey designer Peter Pollard (right)

“The joy for me,” says Peter Pollard, “was to see the kids faces and to hear the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we took the instruments out of the cases! That’s what it’s all about.”

Also pictured are Cath Ormerod, Head Teacher at St Stephens, and George Scott, Sales Executive of local Odyssey stockists Promenade Music.
